DDW Pic 113. The Tree of Life

The Tree of Life
The Tree of Life is another "wonder" of Walt Disney World. This photo, taken in September of 2009, highlights the amazing detail to be found in the 50 foot wide trunk. There are 325 animals carved into this 14 story manmade structure. Containing over 100,000 leaves, this tree was built to withstand winds up to 145 miles per hour. Oh, and just for the fun of it, Disney built a 450 seat theater INSIDE the base of the tree, which is the home of the "It's Tough to Be a Bug!" attraction.
